  • choices inside of choice can end up being complex, you can’t have labels inside of them and remember your curly brackets/braces must match.

  • In the above example if the reader, let’s say chooses Dinner, they will see the options Pasta or Noodles and then they can pick one of them. Also, I color coded everything that I felt needed to be color coded.

Question, when you do a choice instead a choice, do you code it the same one as usual?

For instance, I coded choices in choices and I made each choice matter. So, would I use the if/else method?

You can remember a choice inside a choice by using if/elif/else later on.

Here’s an example:

When you select “male”, and inside of that “yes/confirm” you can remember what was selected by using a gain. Same for the other choice in the female option.

Another example:

Excuse me I know I’m a bit late but I’ve done choice inside of a choice and I keep getting this error at line 522 (at my second choice “”) saying : expected character change or scene… What am I doing wrong?..
Here’s my script :

@NERO starts idle_sad_loop

KADEN (talk_sad)
Damn why do you look so bummed about it?
If you wanna talk to him I can help

NERO (talk_unsure)
No,
I don’t know…
I…

NERO (think_rubchin)
(Maybe I should…)

choice
“I like talking to you for now”{

 KADEN (talk_smile_happy_loop)
 Aw that's sweet thanks
 Let's ChitChat then

@NERO idle_happy_pose
@KADEN starts idle
@NERO -1
}

“Yeah I’d like your help…”{

 KADEN (laugh_chuckle)
 Yeah he his handsome isn't he?
 Almost as much as me
 I'm allowed to say that as we are twins...
 I think?

@NERO idle_happy_pose
@NERO +1
}
}

Remove the second }, the one that I bolded. From what I see, you aren’t doing a choice inside a choice, you are just doing a regular choice (HOW TO: Simple Choices) :blue_heart:

Also:

You forgot the is or starts

@NERO starts idle_happy_pose

Same here.

I only copied a part of my scrip all of it would be too long. I am doing a choice inside of a choice that’s why there’s a second one. Thanks for the answer tho :slight_smile:
I will add the is/starts idle maybe that’s what I was missing

Feel free to PM (private message) me the whole script of where you are doing a choice inside a choice if you don’t want to share it publicly and we will solve it :+1:

That’s very very nice of you. Will do so because it’s still not working

Umh I’m new to this site I have no idea how to pm you I’m sorry…

I PM’d you, don’t worry :+1:

But if you click on a user, it’ll say Message. You can select that and send them something privately. You can even message a group of people, add others to a message or remove yourself from one you didn’t create. Can remember this for next time :heart:
